    I feel
    the walls
    closing in.

    I hear
    the ceiling
    crashing
    down.

    My life
    is changing
    all the way
    around.

    In its
    turbulence,
    I sense I may
    drown.

    I try
    to stay strong
    and not look
    back.

    If I do,
    I will witness
    all the pieces
    of my life
    slipping through
    the dirty
    cracks.

    I stand still
    as I hear
    the rumble of
    a far away
    train.

    The echo of
    its approaching
    whistle, I listen
    to in vain.

    I fall to my
    knees and begin
    to pray.
    I long to be
    among
    its precious
    cargo.

    As the roar
    of its engine
    fades away,
    I wonder,
    when my prayer
    is answered,
    just how far
    will I go?

    Dont worry Sweet Sierra
    Just keep your faith
    GOD is always with you
    and he's never late
    No need to wonder
    if your prayers will be heed
    he dont give us what we want
    but he blesses us with what we need

    Love your scribes! It touches the struggles in ones life!

    Hi Cindy,

    Oh, is that what that sound was? I love that song by the Stones!

    I am happy you liked my poem. I love the sounds of trains, they do seem to take us places, don't they!!

    Thanks for writing!!

    very sad and moving poem, Sierra.
    Just remember you are precious
    in God's eyes
    and that He draws near those
    who draw near to Him.
    Peace and love to ya!
